Alberta Boilers Safety Association
This facility reinforces ABSA's progressive attitude and environmental consciousness, making it the perfect home for the organization's administration and inspectors.
A Glulam structural system was installed to create a warm and inviting environment. The use of glulam beams and columns helped achieve the Building Committee's design objectives for aesthetics, lighting, energy and environment. The clerestory was built on a curve and every roof joist that framed into it had a different length and cut angle. By using our 3D modelling program, Western Archrib constructed each piece and connection to fit together seamlessly, without need for site modifications.
Although this facility hasn't been audited for LEED Certification, Manasc Isaac developed and designed the building to meet a LEED Silver requirement.
